Our Agents

Aponte Literary was founded in 2005 by Natalia Aponte after a long career in publishing that included working as a book buyer for a regional distributor, clerking in a bookstore, working in the marketing dept of a major publisher, and editing manuscripts at Tor books for over 20 years.She accepts submissions of any genre of mainstream fiction and nonfiction, but she is especially seeking women’s novels, historical novels, supernatural and paranormal fiction, fantasy novels, political and science thrillers. In nonfiction, we’ll look at any category with commercial potential. What we consider most important, and certainly more important than genre, is that the writing be strong and fresh.”
